Weighing in at a hefty 4.3kg the Trumstand’s curvaceous horn is crafted in brass and plated with nickel or gold powder, giving it the look of an antique gramophone. Even the base is made from a machined block of aluminium.
You won’t find any woofers or tweeters in the Trumstand because just like an antique gramophone the sound is generated purely from resonance created by the trumpety shape of the horn. Yes, there is a power cord but that’s only there to charge your gizmo when it’s docked. The sonic result? Amazingly vivid aural ambrosia with a hint of old-school gramophone warmth.
£1500, including delivery.
